Noblesse Oblige Blog Bling




Marguerite at Cajun Delights has passed on some great bloggy blingage to me and I am honored. I so enjoy visiting Marguerite's blog. As she says in her own words, it is a place, "...to promote and share our wonderful Cajun culture with the rest of the world. The area known to most as Cajun Country, is so rich in culture and history and is such a fabulous place to live and have lots of fun. Delectable cuisine, incredible music, and warm-hearted people with a contagious "joie de vivre".

The Noblesse Oblige award "rules" say, recipients are recognized for the following:
  • The Blogger manifests exemplary attitude, respecting the nuances that pervade amongst different cultures and beliefs
  • Their Blog contents inspire; strives to encourage, and offers solutions
  • There is a clear purpose at the Blog: one that fosters a better understanding on Social, Political, Economic, the Arts, Cultures, Sciences, and Beliefs
  • The Blog is refreshing and creative; and The Blogger promotes friendship and positive thinking

The requirements of the person receiving the award are as follows:

  • Create a post with a mention and link to the person who presented the Noblesse Oblige Award
  • The Award Conditions must be displayed at the Post
  • Write a short article about what the Blog has thus far achieved – preferably citing one or more older posts as support
  • The Blogger must present the Noblesse Oblige Award in concurrence with the Award conditions
Blogger must display the Award at any location at their Blog

Pretty cool, hunh? I do try to present tips about writing prose and poetry, and hopefully I also promote our awesome Cajun culture while extending a hand in friendship to others. I'm not gonna cite blog posts that backup these assertions because I think y'all all know me well enough by now to know they're true. :) So, on with the passing of the Noblesse Oblige award to others:

Debbie at Suburb Sanity for her great parenting advice and always seeing the humor;

Kathryn at Tender Graces and Kimmi at Writer in Waiting and The Unbreakable Child for going above and beyond as sharing caring authors who help others on the trail;

Terri Tiffany Inspirational Writer for never giving up, and for encouraging others;

Joy at Red Silk Streams for her love of poetry and for being a military mom;

And although most of my favorite blogs/bloggers fit the description for this award, I'll keep it to six. Finally, Michelle the Surly Writer and BigBadJimSuldawgSullivan, who continue to widen the "gray" between black and white margins while making me think and/or laugh. [*Suldog, disregard award nomination if desired, or if it causes you to hunt up more zombie chickens as a reward.*]

Now, have a great and relaxing Saturday! We're entertaining friends from Scotland, so I probably won't be on the computer. See ya soon, sha (Cajunese for "cher," friend).

Why, thank you dear lady. I am blushing over here. And to be included on a list with these fine women? The only thing better would be if we were all together in person, maybe eating some of that good cooking of yours!

I don't your first few choices, but I couldn't agree more about the Gray Crusaders - Michelle and Jim. Besides, you've just about guaranteed an amusing Suldog post by forwarding this award to him, unless he opts to disregard. ;)

Have fun with your visitors.

Hi Angie
It's Eddie Bluelights coming up for air after giving battle to Suldog.
I think I have 'licked' him but I need someone to hold him down while I rearrange his face and teeth. Are you willing to do it?
Had some great fun tonight but boy it all takes time ~ Eddie

Suldog said...

Love you both, Angie and Eddie! Thanks for playing along!

Angie Ledbetter said...
